Not a bug User ban not lifted when user group changed on user edit page

When I change the user group of a banned member from "Banned" to any user group that is not a banned one on the user edit page, the user is not removed from the banned users list, as would be expected.

If this is by design, then I wonder why, surely there should be some connection between the two, to prevent inconsistency in the system and confusion for admins.

User groups do not control the ban status.

You need to explicitly lift the ban, which would remove them from the user group.

When you implement the ban, the member is added to the user group as a consequence of that.

Adding to a user group does not ban a member so the obverse is also true.
